Gateway Classic Cars San Antonio/Austin is thrilled to offer this absolutely beautiful 1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe! This ’32 is a high-end show winner anywhere it goes & was hand-built by the Texas custom hot rod legend Eddie Baumann. You may know of Eddie from his builds featured at SEMA or the Good Guys events, or possibly may have read about him in Motor Trend or SpeedHunters, and that he builds the highest quality customs around. This one is no exception! It started off with a Harwood all-glass body sitting atop a 4” stretched, custom fabricated, boxed-rail chassis that was pinched in the front & has a 2” kick up at the firewall and is “C notched” in the rear. The Harwood grill shell was also chopped & is housing the Dan Fink grill under the Rootlieb hood with custom hinges and super cool looking engine skirt side vents. The front suspension is done up right with a Heidt’s open wheel “Superide” Independent front suspension set up & RideTech coil overs, Borgeson aluminum steering joints and shafts (with vibration dampener) and also has a billet aluminum rack & pinion steering system. Ever piece of this build is of the highest quality & it most certainly shows! The Currie 9” Ford PosiTrak rear end is turning a 3.73 gearing into Currie 31 spline forged axles and is completed with a Strange aluminum read-end center, custom built Panard bar & ladder bars and a set of RideTech rear shocks. Wilwood drilled & slotted, CAD-plated front rotors, aluminum front hubs, Wilwood slotted rears, Wilwood master cylinder and stainless lines with a custom reservoir. This is all sitting on a set up on a retro-looking set of 15” Billet Specialties “Legacy” aluminum alloy wheels with knock-off style caps, a newer set of 195/60/15 rubber up front and some meaty 255/70/15’s out back. I think you are starting to get the picture of just how top quality this build really is. It truly is a rolling piece of art!

Now we get to the heart of this ’32… the engine! The power to this bad boy is compliments of a nasty, all aluminum 540 CID Merlin big block with a 4.5” bore, a Crower 4340 forged steel crank (4.25 stroke), Crower Sportsman bushed steel rods & chamfered bearings, J&E domed pistons, J&E pins, Spiro locks, a Comp hydraulic roller cam (.566 valve lift) and a set of Comp 3/8” push rods, guide plates & studs. All this is under a gigantic set of Brodix WP BB2 (CNC-ported) aluminum heads (1.88” exhaust, 2.25” intake), custom built & color-matched valve covers and a Comp BBC F1 intake manifold, “Rewarder” ceramic-coated headers with heat shields and a custom steel exhaust that was TIG welded & HPC ceramic coated running the engine note through a Flowmaster exhaust system. Once again, this is a “no expense spared” build! Some of the other items are a Comp 1100CFM throttle body, a Fast in-tank fuel pump, Fast wiring harness with an EZ Tune ECU module, an MSD billet aluminum distributor, MSD coil and a set of MSD 8.5mm wires. The custom-built aluminum radiator was sourced to Jackie Howerton out of Indianapolis, along with the auxiliary radiator & fan located in the rear. All this 700+ hp is run through a custom built 700-R4 automatic with a 2500 stall, a B&M trans cooler with a temperature switch, Spal fan & a custom pan that was assembled by Hughes Performance out of Phoenix, AZ. This is controlled in the cabin through a floor mounted Lokar shifter with a modified gate & lock out.

The interior finishings are also thing of beauty, keeping with the overall eye to detail and were hand crafted by upholstery guru Gabe Lopez. The saddle colored, premium leather interior, door panels, German square-weave carpets & headliner took 100’s of hours of handcrafted detailing to complete and are very nicely accompanied by the billet door handles & safety locks, pedal assemblies, steering column, the Lokar shifter, Vintage Air, AutoMeter gauges, a 140 watt “Secret Audio” AM/FM/CD controller with RF remote that are powering the sound through some Alpine SPS-460A coaxial speakers and a Budnik billet aluminum steering wheel completed with color matched leather. In the trunk, you will find a custom fuel cell, color-matched aluminum battery box housing the Optima battery, and even more of the German square-weave carpet! Also nicely tucked away in the rear are the cross bars & mounts for the very nicely tucked roll bar.

It is not very often that a tastefully done build of the highest quality such as this comes to market, but when they do, they are a true pleasure to experience. If you are used to the finer things in life & are looking to add another jewel to the collection, you owe it to yourself to consider this ’32 Coupe!
